Fedora :: Colors In Gnome Terminal?

Mar 30, 2010

I am using Fedora 8, gnome, a tcsh login shell, and I would like to have my directories and files color coded when I use ls. I have been searching the internet far and wide today looking for ways to do this. I have tried all the ways I could find: edit .bsrc file, edit DIR_COLORS, edit DIR_COLORS.xterm, create .dircolors, edit etc/profile, edit .cshrc file, alias ls --colors, and all combinations of this. I can't figure out what I am doing wrong.I use su in my terminal I get the colors for ls. So there must be something up with my user profile? I have tried to edit my terminal profiles and my desktop themes neither worked. Please help! I know this is a trivial issue, but now I am on a mission to figure this out.

Ubuntu :: Set Colors To Be Editable In Terminal?

Jun 22, 2011

I am trying to use the ncurses library for a little side project and am currently trying to display text with varying colors on the screen. I would like for my program to be able to change the hues of the default colors(e.g. make red a little dark, blue a little lighter, etc).

However, according to the ncurses function can_change_color() my terminal does not allow for colors to be altered. I know how to change the palette of colors that my terminal is using but I was wondering if there was a way to allow my colors to be "editable" in a sense.

My terminal is Gnome 2.30.2 and I'm running Ubuntu 10.04LTS

Ubuntu :: Pimp Command Line (Fonts, Colors, Hacks, Terminal Profiles)?

Mar 7, 2011

So I used Arch linux for a while and was really impressed and how colorful the commandline output was. Not only from ls, which I was able to emulate by adding "alias ls="ls --color"" to my .bashrc, but also during, say, bootup and other times.Anyway, I was just wondering, what tricks do you guys use to make your command line experience more visually appealing? Fonts, colors, hacks, terminal profiles?

Fedora :: ATI Driver Causes Wacky Colors On Gnome 3 Top Bar In F15?

Jul 2, 2011

I recently installed Fedora 15 (64-bit), and after running yum update and updating the kernel, I installed the ATI graphics driver from the AMD website. I have an ATI Radeon 5000 series card. The driver itself seems to work ok, as my Gnome 3 still operates after reboot, but the top bar (where the activities button is) is covered in weird rainbow-like colors of green, pink, and gray. It's extremely ugly and I can't find a way to fix it. Upon reading posts by others with this problem, no solutions were brought forth. I have heard that many people with ATI cards don't have this problem, and the bar looks normal for them. I won't really be comfortable using Gnome 3 unless I can get rid of those colors.

Ubuntu :: Bash Broken, Lost Functionality In Terminal (gnome-terminal)?

Dec 10, 2010

Linux-goers. I did some research on this, but I am still fairly new to Linux. In Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick), I accidentally overwrote my "/bin/bash" file. Dude, using "sudo" with a small typo can work disasters. Bash is now broken in the Terminal (gnome-terminal). Terminal itself still works fine, technically, but bash is still hosed/broken. Here is what I did to try to fix it: Booted from Ubuntu 10.10 live CD. Mounted my Ubuntu partition and manually copied the good/fresh "bash" file onto my hard drive. Verified copy was successful. Didn't help, as you see. Reinstalled "gnome-terminal" using synaptic package manager. Tried to reinstall bash via synaptic, it failed with error, "E: /var/cache/apt/archives/bash_4.1-2ubuntu4_i386.deb: subprocess new pre-removal script returned error exit status 2"

In Terminal, all basic commands work as far as I can tell. ("ls", "pwd", navigation, etc.) Here are some problems:My "username@computername" does not display in the prompt; only the $ sign. Bash keyboard shortcuts such as uparrow and tab do not work. Instead, each inserts a key code. I can't even move the cursor left/right. Aliases (a function of bash and .bashrc) are broken, of course. My sanity level decreases when I use Terminal now. For what it's worth, even with "sudo" I get a "permission denied" error when trying to run Google Chrome! I read something about a ".bashrc" file being a possible problem, but I don't know how to make it work, or the file's proper locations in Ubuntu 10.10. Is there something I can do with a "make" or "apt-get install" command or something?? Could this simply be a permissions problem? Is the link to "/bin/bash", "/bin/sh", or a ".bashrc" file broken? Guide me, oh Linux gurus.

P.S. I always wondered what exactly bash was and how it was different from the basic terminal. LoL, this is an excellent way to demonstrate the difference, and I WANT IT BACK!

Ubuntu :: Can't Turn On Terminal Bell In Gnome-terminal Using Remote Screen Session With Irssi

Nov 6, 2010

I'm using 10.04, and gnome-terminal GNOME Terminal 2.30.2 . I have irssi running on screen session on remote host. And I've been struggling for quite many days to configure it to produce either visual feedback or ring terminal's bell when I receive a private message or one of those that are highlighted.

My compiz settings window in General tab has 'Audible bell' checked.

My GNOME terminal has 'Terminal bell' checked.

I also added 'set bell-style audible' to my ~/.inputrc

And I also tried to manually load pcspkr module into my kernel.

No of the above helped or at least I haven't been able to notice any difference.

I also used some commands for irssi to produce bell sign.

Debian Multimedia :: Xcompmgr 'master' - Rounded Window Borders Don't Draw And Redraw Properly When Using The Terminal (gnome-terminal And The LXDE And Xfce Ones)

Aug 26, 2011

I find xcompmgr more than adequate for making a desktop look pretty modern, and I don't like the more extravagentCompiz gimmicks - but there is one thing that irritates when using xcompmgr which someone here might have worked round.

Rounded window borders don't draw and redraw properly when using the Terminal (gnome-terminal and the LXDE and Xfce ones) or system monitor and moving them from their default place. You get this little white botch at the corners. I'm not massively technical and I'm ambivalent about how much more I want to learn as I have plenty of creative outlets already, but I would like to solve this. Somehow xcompmgr is treating these programs as a different class? It's capable of drawing the window borders properly as it is just these two programs that get botched. Possibly this doesn't get noticed as maybe people usually use xcompmgr with openbox and LXDE and their square window borders. I did do a search but there was nothing matching what I saw.

May 30, 2010

I'm running CentOS 5.4 on i386 machine with 2.6.18-194.3.1.el5Whenever I login into Gnome, a gnome-termial window comes up. Instantly title says root@localhost before settling with user@localhost with current directory as ~/Downloads. Only happens with my particular user account (normal user), not with root as I tried. I also have KDE, Xfce, Fluxbox as other option at login, but terminal only shows up when I log into Gnome (not kde, xfce or fluxbox)I've done and

1. cronetab -e
Nothing there.
2. Don't have ~/.xinitrc ~/.session

Ubuntu :: Gnome PPP And KPPP Only Works From Terminal?

Feb 22, 2010

I just installed 9.10 and this is my first time using Ubuntu. I was using Kubuntu before and used KPPP with my Verizon USB720 wireless card. It's the type that gets internet access through the cell towers.I installed KPPP but when I try to start it I get this error:

Quote:

Could not launch KPPP
Failed to execute child process (permission denied)

I tried Gnome PPP and it would open but not connect. This is what is in my log files"

Quote:

--> WvDial: Internet dialer version 1.60
--> Cannot get information for serial port.
--> Initializing modem.

[code]....

After doing much searching and reading I figured out to open Gnome PPP from the terminal with sudo. When I do that it works fine. Also KPPP opens that way although I haven't tried it to see if it connects. Although this works it's not a very convenient way to connect. How can I get it to work without doing this?
